1. Function
1.1 Purpose The web width control system corrects the width of running webs
(textile tire cord) along both web edges.

1.2 Design

Actuator Actuator

Sensor Sensor

Support beam Support beam

Example: Web width control system
BCS with spreader BC 1...
and sensor

The web width guider consists of the following components:

- two sensors to detect the actual position
- two motorized sensor support beams VS 351. / VE 50..
- two actuators (width spreader)
- two digital controllers DC .... .

- command station DO ....
- digital interface DI .... (e.g. CAN PLC, CAN ARCNET,

1.3 Operating principle The sensors are moved to the requested target position by the mo-
torized sensor support beams. They scan the position of the guiding
criterion (edge). If the guiding criterion deviates from its set position
(sensor zero point) the appropriate sensor transmits the magnitude
and direction of the deviation to the digital controller for evaluation.
The position controller uses the actuating element to return the gui-
ding criterion to its set position, see guiding diagram. Web edge cor-
rections are performed on moving webs only.

Assembly / Installation

2. Assembly Please observe the locally applicable and professional safety

and accident prevention regulations!

2.1 Actuating element  Mount actuating element according to attached description. See
also dimensioned or set-up drawing.

2.2 Sensors The sensors are pre-mounted on the actuating element (sensor sup-
port beam). In exceptional cases, see sensor and actuating element
descriptions, application instructions section.

2.3 Support beam (optional) The support beam is pre-mounted on the actuating element. In ex-
ceptional cases, see support beam description. The support beam
must be mounted so that the sensors are located immediately after
the actuating element, see also actuating element description, appli-
cation instructions section.

2.4 Digital controller The digital controller is either mounted on the actuating element or
designed for mounting in a control cabinet on-site.
The connection between control board and D.C. positioning drive
can run in one line up to a length of 3 m. However, if the distance
is between 3 m and 10 m then the motor lead and the lead of the
incremental encoder MUST run seprately.

2.5 Command stations  The command stations should be mounted in such a way that the
(optional) operator actually sees the equipment he is controlling (e.g. the
support beam).

3. Installation Please observe the locally applicable and professional safety

and accident prevention regultions !

 Run electrical leads according to the attached wiring diagram.

3.1 Sensor  No installation work is requried for compact systems. See the sen-
sor description for exceptions.

Setup mode

4. Setup mode Setup settings should be performed by qualified personnel only.

Basic operation in setup mode on how parameters are displayed
and changed, is documented in the following diagram. In setup
mode, the parameter values may be displayed and modifiable pa-
rameter values also changed by each device featured in the CAN
4.1 Basic operation in setup network.

Setup mode iis started via the "Acknowledge" key and, at the same time, the
"Increase value" key. If a password is requested in the display, setup mode
may only be started once the password has been entered .

Enter the password via the "In-
crease/Decrease value" keys.
+ Press "F2" to select each indivi-
dual place.

Setup mode

4.2 Important additions The following two options are available to quit setup mode:
1. Jump back in the menu to the start window (as described in sec-
tion 4.1 "Basic operation in setup mode").
2. Setup mode is quit by pressing one of three "Automatic", " Center
mode" or "Manual mode" keys, regardless of where one is.
Device address Device designation CANMON may only be called up once, either via the CANMON
program or command station DO 200. .
A flashing device address means that two devices are featured in the
CAN network with the same device address.
If the device designation flashes, the device is not featured (is not
identified via CANMON).

4.3 Allocate password All settings in setup mode may be protected by a freely selected
password. Settings in setup mode are only possible following pass-
word entry. To assure that no unauthorised persons may enter setup
mode, we recommend that a password is defined as follows:
 Start setup mode.
 Select the "customer PIN" parameter in the device (*ZC 4070*)
and enter a five-place numerical password. The password may be
freely selected between 1 and 32767.
If parameter value "0" is entered, no password will be requested
(status on delivery).
 Quit setup mode.
Should unauthorised persons attempt to establish the password
by entering numbers, after the third entry of an incorrect pass-
word, setup mode is inhibited and in addition, a commentary ente-
red in the error memory. Switch off the power briefly on command
station DO 200. to re-enable it.

7. Optimization Amplification is correctly set if, after brief overshooting the error is
corrected. If the position controller is set with too great a degree
7.1 Optimization premises of sensitivity, the guider will overshoot as well. In the case of too
little amplification the control loop will be too slow. Optimum am-
plification may be determined with a characteristic curve tracer. In
practice, amplification may also be determined by trial and error:
Amplification too high While the web is controlled in the automatic mode it is necessa-
ry to shortly cover up the sensor measuring range (with a piece
of cardboard for ex.) . A change of the web position will change
Amplification right the web path. The level-out behavior of the web guider provides
Amplification too low
further data on the amplification.
The smaller the set proportional range is for the maximum correction
path of the actuator (parameter ".4.5. prop stroke ±"), the greater the
amplification of the web guider.
A negative proportional range causes negative amplification, the
effective direction is thus inverted in automatic mode.

By reducing the proportional range the characteristic curve (see fig.)

becomes steeper. The steeper the characteristic curve the greater
the positioning path of the actuator given a control deviation and the
more sensitive the system becomes. The correction positioning path
of the actuator may be established on the basis of the characteristic
curve independently of the control deviation.

KAP--250556-EN-01 A page 15

In this example a proportional range of 2 mm or 3.5 mm has been

assumed with a correction positioning path of 25 mm.
If the control deviation is 1,5 mm the following correction positioning
paths will result:
18 mm for a proportional range of 2 mm
10,5 mm for a proportional range of 3,5 mm
The values may also be calculated arithmetically:
Amplification (G) = parameter .4.5. / parameter .1.3.
Correction positioning path (SK) = control deviation * amplication (G)

Example 1: Example 2:
G = 25/2 = 12.5 G = 25/3.5 = 7.14
SK = 1.5 mm * 12.5 SK = 1.5 mm * 7.14
VK = 18.75 mm VK = 10.71 mm

Reduce the proportional range by small steps only. Following each

change of the parameter value a web deviation should be produced
manually in automatic mode so that oscillation may be detected im-
Reduce the proportional range until the guider starts to oscillate. The
increase the proportional range again until no more oscillation may
be observed.
7.2 Optimizing the proportio-
nal range
 Select operational mode "Automatic" .

 Select parameter ".1.3. prop range ±" .

 Modify parameter value as required.
Smaller value = web guider more responsive
Bigger value = web guider less responsive
Each time the parameter value is changed the web should be de-
viated so that oscillation is detected immediately.
Leave the setup mode after setting the proportional range.

If two or several digital controllers are networked it is necessary to

select the equipment address of the relevant web guider before
selecting the parameter, see chapter "Setup-Editor".
